How to Install Blender with Cycles Render Engine in Ubuntu


Hi guys,

I finally made a post using english just in case to get a wider audience to view our video here. This tutorial will show you how to install Blender with Cycles render engine. And before you run it on your Ubuntu, make sure you’ve installed this library, let’s count

  • libboost-filesystem1.42.0
  • libboost-regex1.42.0
  • libboost-system1.42.0
  • libboost-serialization1.42.0
  • libboost-thread1.42.0

Just go to synaptic and search that file…oh yeah, I’ve mention a PPA in video which contain any library you need to run cycles smoothly. You can add the ppa by just copy paste the syntax below to your lovely terminal :)

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lucid-bleed/ppa
sudo apt-get update

And finally enjoy the Video

  1. I’m really relieved that you finally made a post in English. I’ve been checking your site before but was honestly disappointed because I did not understand what the content was about. I really highly suggest you continue forth with this. Keep it up. And thanks a lot!



    1. Thanks Reyn…anyway why I post in bahasa because i want any Indonesian viewer can learn from my video blog. Well, If that so, maybe I’ll change my mind about it and start to post in english, and bundle it with bahasa subtitle :)

      nah just kidding…I’ll try my best to do so mate and thanks for your honest comment


  2. Thanks Mas Aditia A. Pratama…. tutorialnya bermanfaat banget, cycle nya di studio bisa berjalan dengan baik di Ubuntu 10.04 64bit.
    Yang menjadi kesulitan adalah mengecek device yang aktif. Karena di studio menggunakan 3 buah VGA. Apakah semuanya langsung aktif ya?

    1. yups, you’re welcome mas Charles…wah 3 VGA yah..hehehe belum uji coba sih mas…tapi setahu saya di render setting ada pilihan rendering via CPU atau GPU,

      jika saya menggunakan CPU, pergerakan mouse di UI blender smooth…nah jika menggunakan GPU…UI blender jadi patah2 gitu.

      Ini uji cobanya di home studio :) btw thanks mas

  3. And for the people like me who would just like to know where to go to get the install files:

    I came here by googling “blender cycles install”, having just seen some videos of the renderer in use, and I don’t really feel like watching this 10 minute video to get information I could read in 5 seconds. It’s good you’re going to the trouble of helping people out, and a text summary of the basic steps would be even better.
